After going last year and seeing how awful it was, I said I'd never go again.
I was going to go this year. But then I got tickets to an early preview of the new Hunger Games movie tonight and I figured that would be a better use of my time.
Maybe next year, unless there is absolutely anything else to do.

Wow, it's crowded! It may even be- I can't believe I'm about to say this- too crowded. Certainly it's more difficult to attract vendor attention at most booths. There's only a single coffee/meeting area, and it's branded. In fact, Ed Several announced that all booths were sold out this year.
I was at the 2006 show and it was still small compared to ISC West or ASIS.
Who got a picture with Daryl?
It's all about location and for the standpoint of who are you taking with you to the show (wife or whatever) ISC West has it over ISC East every time, Besides the western rim manufactures have don't have to travel as far and have more direct connections.
This post will be a little self-serving but why not. Those of you who wink be at the show do drop over to booth 656 and rest your eyes a full-working and integrated Turnstile from Aeroturn with a iris recognition & Identification camera (reader) from SRI International. The two company outstanding in their own right have teamed up to improve overall though-put while offering a couple turnkey design/build solution.
As requested I saw you and said hi.
Show was as full as I have seen in years. Both exhibitors and vendors.
I think this image tells you everything you need to know about ISC East.
I was there on Wednesday primarily to attend a few of the lectures. I thought it was rather ironic that Hikvision gave the lecture on cybersecurity.
As a manufacturer I have to say that I was pleased with both the amount and caliber of the folks that I spoke with. It seemed that the people who were there were actually interested in learning about the products/services that were being offered. I didn't see anyone that appeared to be on a boondoggle.
I spoke to several other manufacturers that had similar opinions.
So less focus on ASIS, more on ISC East?
ISC East says attendance was up 8% year over year but weirdly does not actually state attendance. It's been a few years since they actually said what attendance was.
They did says 'over 210 exhibitors' but back in 2008 they had cited 'More than 325 companies.'
